Gobelet Cemetery, April 1999


            Gobelet Cemetery is near the eastern end of the Marsh Creek Valley. In recent years someone from the Dabbs-Gobelet family with an interest in family history has spent a considerable sum on both new markers and replacements of older markers. About a third of the cemetery area has only fieldstones or sunken spots to indicate graves. Leo and David Donahue recorded this Gobelet Cemetery December 26, 1988. David Donahue updated it April 16, 1999 and checked and updated it August 30, 2004.
